Lie a Little Better

Album: Road Between (2014)
  • I just missed my exit
    Last night I lost my keys
    I'm fumbling over the words, I
    Don't feel a bit like me these days

    I would be a liar
    If I said I was fine
    But I can't help being honest
    And I know now is not the time
    'Cause

    The truth is I'm falling to pieces
    Anytime that you're around
    Trouble is the truth keeps slipping out (woah)
    Can't seem to hide what I'm feeling
    Can't believe what I'm saying out loud
    Truth is there's no turning back now
    I guess I shoulda learned how to lie a little better

    Been trying to cover
    This heart out on my sleeve
    Been set on playing this down but
    I think you're catching on to me

    Truth is I'm falling to pieces
    Anytime that you're around
    Trouble is the truth keeps slipping out (woah)
    Can't seem to hide what I'm feeling
    Can't believe what I'm saying out loud
    Truth is there's no turning back now
    Well, I guess I shoulda learned how to lie a little better

    I'm losing this battle
    With every word I say
    Wish I had a better lesson
    Of not giving myself away
    'Cause

    The truth is I'm falling to pieces
    Anytime that you're around
    Trouble is the truth keeps slipping out
    Can't seem to hide what I'm feeling
    Can't believe what I'm saying out loud
    Truth is there's no turning back now
    Well, I guess I shoulda learned how to lie a little better Writer/s: MELISSA PEIRCE, MIKE DALY, CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL DE STEFANO
